Senior Caroline Chamberlain had never spent much time with a camera until a course last semester sparked her creativity—and now she’s collecting awards.
A project in Christina Price Washington’s “Intro to Digitial Photography” class led Chamberlain to attend the Atlanta Photography Group’s PUSH-PiN exhibition early in January. She displayed six prints from her “The Unnoticed” collection, with APG members voting her “The Unnoticed No. 2” as the People’s Choice Award winner.
“I attended this event having no expectations, so it was an honor for others to appreciate my work,” Chamberlain said. “Quite a few people would approach me and start conversations with me, and I had a really great time. I would also like to thank my professor, Christina Washington, for encouraging me to show off my work and working with me on this collection.”
Chamberlain wins a waived entry fee into a juried APG exhibition in the future, and a $50 tuition credit to an APG workshop. Her photos will stay on exhibit through January 25 at PUSH-PiN.
“Photography is something I have always had an interest in, but now it has become more of a hobby since I took the class in the fall,” Chamberlain said. “I have fallen in love with starting a portfolio and wanting to show others my images.”
